We left Kansas in contrary winds.
Ranging from 22-24 mph, the winds were coming at us, at the front and the side, as if to blow us over, and hold us back.
We soon learned it costs you more to go against contrary winds, but you have to go against them.
It was both hands on the wheel kind of day, and frustrating to watch both the miles per hour and miles per gallon drop down.
The closer we got to our destination, the better it got. The wind changed direction and the wind got behind us.
Suddenly, it was like we were being pushed. It was smooth sailing, all quiet, hardly any effort required.
There was a increase, and we picked up speed and miles per gallon. We couldn’t help but see the spiritual revelations in this experience.
When you are in the will of God, the Holy Spirit has your back. He is the wind at your back. You may have contrary circumstances for a moment, but it’s just a season.
Psalms 37:23 The steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord and he delights in his way.
We would like to give a reminder that Gods plan for our lives, is the best and blessed life.
Jesus still speaks to contrary winds. They still obey. He still expect us to speak to the mountains and see them move.
There is a Irish Blessing or Prayer, we pray over you today, as you read it:
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the Son Shine warm upon your face until we meet again. May the Lord hold you in the palm of His Hand.
